HWB Planning And Managing Social Work Research

Here students develop understanding and use of philosophies of research in developing and evaluating successful research designs. In addition there are tutorials and seminars relating to practical evaluation of policy and practice in social work and related fields. Students apply knowledge from debates over ontology and epistemology to contrasting research problems, demonstrate understanding of theory-practice relations in historical context and apply selected philosophies of social science to research and evaluation designs in disciplinary or professional contexts. Assessment requires responding to a given evaluation tender with a presentation, and drafting a research proposal suitable for a funding application.

HWB Current Debates In Social Work Theories And Values

This module aims to relate knowledge and understanding of contemporary debates in social work theory and values and their links with contemporary social and political life to the design, development and delivery of social work research. Three broad themes are followed: social justice, empowerment and freedom; globalisation and social work and the social work profession. Students share in the development of thinking across these three themes in respect of selected groups of service users. In addition to key theorists and current critiques, the module makes use of a wide range of video and audio material as well as historical or theoretical documentaries. The module is designed to enable students to pursue specific issues relevant to their workplace and to national and/or international issues. Assessment requires extended discussion and critique of literature in a chosen area, with particular reference to current research generated from these.
